Re: Timing

Hi Bill:
Just to let you know that I fired it up yesterday and it ran great. First time it has run in 47 years. If you are interested, check out my project on www.jimmys-durant.com and go to the last page video. You can see it running. Thanks for you interest.

Re: Timing


Yes, It's always fun bringing life back in these old engines after setting for so many years....Be sure and re-torque the head after it has been ran a bit and warmed up....Looking at pictures on your site it appears that you had as much a problem digging your Durant out of that barn as I did my Flint when I bought it a couple months back.
